Forcing efficacy

There’s a new paper, discussing climate sensitivity, by Marvel, Schmidt, Miller & Nazarenko called Implications for climate sensitivity from the response to individual forcings. Before I discuss the paper, I should really advertise the lead author’s blog, arguably one of … Continue reading

Watt about Roger’s questions?

I haven’t done a Watt about post for quite some time, so thought I would repeat it just this once. Roger Pielke Sr has guest post on Watts Up With That claiming to present seven very inconvenient questions that Gavin … Continue reading

Andy Lacis responds to Steve Koonin

I know Eli’s already posted Andy Lacis’s response to Steve Koonin on Judith Curry’s blog, but I thought it worth repeating. It’s a pretty impressive comment in terms of what it covers, so it’s worth reading in it’s own right. … Continue reading

CO2 forcing observed from surface

I thought I would post this video illustrating the first time that a change in CO2 forcing has been observed from the ground. The paper is an Observational determination of surface radiative forcing by CO2 from 2000 to 2010 by … Continue reading

Back to basics

Although I didn’t really think through starting this blog, one motivation was that I was aware that quite a lot of what was said about climate science in the blogosphere was simply wrong. I thought that if I could point … Continue reading

Forcings and feedbacks

William Connolley had a recent post about making stuff up, that discussed the linear relationship between temperature change and change in forcing (ΔT = λΔF). I commented that I had thought that this linear relationship was simply an approximation based … Continue reading
